Ho-Ho-Ho-ing

What a difference a year makes. Last December, Liam was no bigger than these stuffed snow people.
Now the little giggle box is twice their size. He is so good natured, always smiling and laughing. He even woke up from his nap laughing out loud.

In preparation for Santa's imminent arrival in our living room, I  showed him his scrap book with last year's photos of him with Santa. He would look at the pictures then close the book and look away, indicating he wasn't really comfortable with the big guy in the red suit.

When Santa came down the hallway into the living room, Liam clung to me. I explained, "Santa wants to hold you like he did when you were a little baby. You sit on his lap and I will take your picture, then I'll hold you." He understood, but he was not really happy, on the verge of tears, and then Santa talked, and Liam recognized his voice. He was trying to figure it all out, and ended up giving Santa  high five.
How I love these two guys!

Liam is a doll.

(And I'd recognize those wiggly eyebrows anywhere. SS--Sasquatch Santa.)

I can't believe how fast the time has gone that allows Liam to be so big!

I adore "good-natured, always smiling..." kids. They are not all like this. Some can be quite unfriendly. Liam is blessed by God with a good,sweet nature.

Lisa thinks Santa's cute? Lisa needs new glasses.

Linda--I'm doing Cathy Hall's challenge, so I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all you do for me as a writer. As a WWWPer, as a blogger, as a friend. I'm grateful for it all. You are one of the most generous, humble writers I know, along with being overloaded with talent.

A big thank you for all you are and all you do.
